Clicking Our Heels – Our Favorite Numbers and Why
Kimberly Jayne – My favorite number is 4. Has been since I was a little girl. It’s more meaningful now because I had four kids. It’s even and sounds good rolling off the tongue. Four is me.
Paffi S. Flood – My favorite number is 13. It’s my birthday and kids made fun of it when it landed on Fridays, so I decided to do the opposite and adopt it.
Dru Ann Love – The number 4. It is an even number and my birth date.
Sparkle Abbey – We don’t really have favorite numbers. Maybe if we played the lottery we’d have a different answer. Right now, our favorite numbers are 9 and 10 because those are the numbers of the books that we’re currently writing.
Jennae Phillippe – I am terrible at favorite, so I have a list: 3, 7, 8, 9, 13, 42. Each of them has a different reason behind it. The most obvious ones are 3 and 7, as numbers that show up in stories over and over again; 13 because it is my lucky number, and 42 because of Douglas Adams.
Bethany Maines – 8. Because I kick ass at Crazy Eights.
Paula Gail Benson – 4. It’s always been lucky for me.
Kay Kendall – My favorite number is eight. I think I love the symmetry of how it looks as a numeral – 8. My lucky number, however, appears to be seven. Those are definitely two different things.
Debra H. Goldstein – 27. It has a nice ring to it and is the date my twins were born. I had a difficult pregnancy during which this type A person spent almost eight months counting the hours to viability. They were born two days and seven hours after the point at which I had been assured they would have a good chance of surviving.
